This is just going to be a quick post. I’ve been so busy recently that I’ve not had time to blog much. Thanks for all the nice comments on my one year blogging anniversary. I’m looking forward to doing the draw on Sunday. That’s a couple of days away, so if there is anyone who still wants to enter you‘ve still got time! I was amazed at the number of comments I got and I’m enjoying working my way through reading the blogs of those of you I hadn’t ‘met’ before.
There is another reason I’m looking forward to this weekend and that is because I’m going to take some photos of my finished Celtic Knot Stole. Yes, I did say finished. Finally! I blocked it on Tuesday night using my new blocking wires from Heirloom knitting. I would definitely recommend using them, they made what would have been a very tedious task fairly painless. They also meant that I could get very straight edges.
By the way, you know I said how good I’d been resisting the Posh Yarn in my last post? Since then I have bought two skeins of Posh Yarns lace weight yarn, a ball of Opal sock yarn, 3 balls of Rowan hand knit cotton, two balls of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and a ball of cotton to make dishcloths…. Yes, I’m hanging my head in shame. Photos on Sunday of everything I promise!
I almost forgot to tell you another exciting bit of news, Hip Knits have got the details of their 2007 contest up on their website. It is £5 to enter and for that you get a 100g of yarn with which to make something with lace in it. I received some gorgeous lace weight yarn in bright pinks and purples (pictured above - badly!).
